Regular readers will know that I am a skincare lover - I love nothing more than pampering myself and taking care of my skin. I have a good routine going so for a product to make it into my regular lineup, it has to be pretty amazing but that is what has happened since I received Clarins SOS Comfort Mask. Clarins recently added three new masks to their line up: SOS Hydra for dehydrated skin, SOS Pure for oily and combination skin and SOS Comfort for dry skin, which is the one I chose as my skin is more dry than dehydrated, although I must admit that I am tempted by the Hydra mask too.
The SOS Comfort mask can be used as a quick fix - applied after cleansing & exfoliating and left to work for 10 minutes before removing the excess with a cotton pad soaked in toner for an instant brightening and plumping effect, or it can be used as an overnight mask, which is my preference. It is described as a nourishing balm mask and that description could not be more accurate - this thick, luxurious product (that is slightly scented of mangoes - yum!) cocoons the skin, instantly making it feel less stressed and more comfortable. It literally is like a hug for your skin with that feeling of comfort of laying your head on the most comfortable pillow in a freshly made bed - utter bliss.
As I said, my preferred method is to use it as an overnight mask and I wake up to soft, smooth, nourished and radiant skin. My hair doesn't stick to my skin and my face doesn't stick to my pillow, which is always a bonus!
This mask would be perfect for using on flights or on holiday to inject some moisture into parched skin. It is a 75 ml tube, which is travel friendly and I really love that it is in a lightweight tube rather than a pot - both for travel and hygiene purposes.
If you have dry or stressed skin, you need this mask in your life! At the moment, I am resisting the urge to use it every night and have limited myself to 2/3 times weekly. It is priced at £30 or €38 and is available from Clarins counters nationwide or online from the Clarins site.
Have you tried any of the new Clarins SOS masks?
